Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (CO-01) issued the following statement after the House passed a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the remainder of the fiscal year:

“Finally, Republican leaders recognized what has been clear for weeks: whatever their disagreements with President Obama and his actions to address our broken immigration system, Congress must provide the necessary resources to protect our homeland from attacks and be prepared to respond to natural disasters. While we should have taken this action weeks ago, I am pleased to see this get done at last.”
